Every job I've ever had I got paid weekly. For some reason I don't like the sound of getting paid every two weeks.

You get use to it. Just have to know how to budget correctly. I haven't been paid on a weekly basis since the mid 90's I think. I would be all screwed up on a weekly basis

Adapt and overcome... the want to go blow it all on a really nice gun instead of a decent one.

1 case 12 G #7. "check"
1/2 case .45 ACP. "check"
1/2 case .40 S&W "check"
1/2 case 9 mm. "check"

The cost of marketing simply can't be avoided...

It's now Thursday and yesterday went great. We had 5 construction guys plus my eldest son and his girlfriend up on the mountain in a great quarry of a sunny day...what more could I ask for?

I've no got 6 filthy pistols, 2 dirt shotguns, a Grungy AR, a goupy AK, and a sloppy 10-22 that were thoroughly douches with solevent and stored muzzle down until I can find time to clean them all...

I also got 2 shoot 2 platforms I'd not yet tried...

A Mosin that I was quite impressed with. Though it was certainly stiffer than any other bolt Ive handled, I did not need a shoe to open the bolt and found it reasonably accurate for what it was. Shooting was informal stationary clay pigeons at about 80 yards offhand and though I only hit one out of five shots, I would guess this particular Mosin would give sub 2 MOA groups at 100 if put on a bench.

The other was a Ruger SR9 and while it's a little bigger than I like, I thought it shot extremely well for a sub $250 9 mm. I enjoyed the ability to easily stage the "visible" hammer for quick shot and really think Ruger did a good job on this design. Great Value.

Well, that's how I ended my hump day and it's looking all downhill to the weekend from here...

Tack

Well I made it to payday with no more rubber checks. Got within about $5 of my overdraft limit though... Scary. Guess I'll switch to Ramen noodles for a couple weeks so I can afford another range trip. Missed last week.

Probably not with the amount I'm donating as bounce charges. Sux buying a $5 lunch and paying $29 more for the bank charge. Sux even more when that is one of several small transactions!!!
